  3. Hi everyone! MegaCon 2017 is right around the corner and we finally have a table confirmation. That means we need to coordinate who all is interested and available to run said table for the event. For those that don't know, it is held at the Orange County Convention Center and the convention days and times are as follows: Thursday, May 25 2pm–9pm Friday, May 26 10am–7pm Saturday, May 27 10am–7pm Sunday, May 28 10am–5pm Please let us know if you are interested and available to help out at the table for any length of time on these days. We only have a set number of badges so we need to know who all is interested and we will make up a schedule from there. The last day for volunteers will be this Sunday, May 21, so that we have time to coordinate with everyone and figure out what the badge situation will be. Thanks everyone!

  5. That's a pretty solid list, lots of games on there that I haven't played but have been on my list of "need to play" games for a long time.

    Holiday Matsuri 2016 is a festive holiday convention held every year in Orlando, FL! This year, the convention will be at the glorious Orlando World Center Marriot, from December 16-18! Last year, the Orlando Guild was invited to table at Holiday Matsuri, and we were even the benefactors of their benefit ball where we raised over $2,000! This year should be even better as attendance is expected to increase, which will help with sign-ups AND the benefit ball fundraiser. Info: This will be updated as more information arrives, but as of right now, this is what we know. Two tables Vendor Hall Gaming Room Benefit Ball All proceeds donated to Extra Life Orlando Guild We are looking for any and all volunteers, so if you're interested, please let this be know. We can't wait for this event, and we look forward to making a great impact for the kids!
